Thrilled to virtually attend the Oxford Brookes "Shaking the Lights" series hosted by Niall Munro of the Poetry Centre. After the event, anticipating the release of a new book by Dr Eric White. The online event "...explores the works of several American avant-garde writers from the twentieth century. This series of events from February to April showcases both the writers - some well-known, some less celebrated - and also Eric's fascinating research into these poets and their time."
Follow Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre for lots of other highly anticipated summer literature events.

Artist and visionary, Yayoi Kusama's 'Infinity Mirrors' Exhibition is at the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum in DC. It's challenging to pick a favorite piece of art, so I will just say it was a bucket list visit.
Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos. Polka dots are a way to infinity."

All week with my hands digging into the soil. Springtime in Virginia means mulch and more mulch, birds chirping, squiggly worms, robin eggs, bunnies, and so much chatter in my enchanted forest. It feels as though the very trees hold secrets within each root and whisper stories if you but take the time to listen. And if my secret garden played the violin, it would song like this: LINK
Hold a poem with your bear hands just by digging in the dirt.
What a sensation to see Ashes to Ashes make it into the hands of dear Astra Papachristodoulou EIC of Poem Atlas. It's a full circle as Poem Atlas was the first journal (non-military affiliated) to accept my submissions and go onto show some of my ash poems inside their object poetry exhibitions and add Poetry Egg and Cutie Saurus into the AWW-STRUCK journal.
Follow Astra and Poem Atlas on Twitter and Instagram.
So, the lovely Astra got some mail from Paper View and what a stunning arrangement (image from her Twitter). Today, let's talk about Kate Siklosi's Conjure. This is one of those instant classics. It weaves magic, movement, chance, and torn bits of book together into a potion.
